Lake Erie Instructions

I am a newbee sailor having one year experience on an inland lake about 1 hour south of Cleveland. I am interested in taking lessons this summer on Lake Erie with goal of moving my older Catalina 27 to an area west of Cleveland. Does any one have suggestions regarding good instructional programs. I am interested in learning offshore navigation, anchoring, unfamiliar docking using a larger sail boat ect. Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Jeff - Mello Yello

Lake Erie Instructions

Jeff, as far as the Inland seas are concerned, you''re picking one of the best areas on the lakes (IMHO)! The western end of Lake Erie offers a lot in the way of learning to sail. I keep my 26 ft Cape Dory at Battery Park Marina in Sandusky, and feel that the Bay offers you a tremendous variety in terms of learning experiences. The most important of these is the ability to sail even when the lake itself is too rough to sail on (the Bay being sheltered water it rarely gets too rough to sail). Now, to answer your question, Harbor North in Huron, Ohio, offers lessons of all sorts that would go a long ways in preparing you to sail. Contact TJ at Harbor North. You will find their website at www.harbornorth.com.
If you''re looking for a place to dock your boat in that area the possibilities are numerous. I strongly suggest, however, that you look at the Sandusky Bay area, and in particular, at Battery Park. I have many friends at other marinas, but the location of BP makes it a great place to sail out of. If you would like to discuss this further, please email me at waltzingmatilda@sailnet.net and I would be glad to talk with you. My home is in Warren, Ohio, but have good sailing friends in Tiffin, Rocky River, and other places along the lake. Where do you live?
Fair winds.

ASA ( American Sailing Assn )has a good program series which begins with a very clear VHS and book and ends with hands-on practice and a test for certification. While I cannot recommend anyone in your area, they will be able to provide you with names etc. to get you started in May 2004.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
